Chocolate Salami (Salami Dolce)

Posted by Bee & John on April 12, 2011 at 9:00 PM

I actually made the Chocolate Salami (from wonderful www.SuperKitchenMachine.com) a month ago... but mucked it up a bit... then fixed it... read all about it :D

First of all - the recipe is VERY easy to follow!  The only thing you really need, apart from the ingredients, is patience.  You need to WAIT until it has cooled long enough to work with and WAIT long enough (about 3-4 weeks) to get the BEST out of it.

How did I stuff it up?  I added too much port to the soaking items and after it was all together the log just didn't set - and was only just a little firm after sitting in the fridge for a while.  I was heartbroken but didn't want to throw it out.  So, I took it out of the rolls, warmed it up again and added some more chocolate - then rolled it up again.  Perfect!  It tastes MAGNIFICENT!

HINT: cut REALLY REALLY thin slices! (Like shaved meat salami) somehow it tastes even better!

LESSON: stick to the amounts needed LOL

LESSON: if you do have one a bit soggy - and you need to add some more chocolate make sure you add some more nuts/fruit - my choc salami tastes magnificent but they look a little sparse now when cut.

Why don't I have a photo?  It never stays on the plate long enough :)

Oh my! I am so glad that:
a) you tried the recipe
b) you decided to add your own creative, boozy 'twist'
c) you persisted, rescued the thing, and didn't lose faith
d) you enjoyed the final outcome
and
e) you are willing to make it again! (I hope)
Big round of applause for you. And I like your suggestions about slicing thinly like salami. Beware though, if serving it this way at a party in a darkened room, people will be really fooled. (It's best if they are told that it's chocolate.) Thanks for telling us all about your choco salami 'adventure' !
